Had to stop by this historic place and see if any ghosts appeared! Sat in the back room but had to move because got an immediate headache???? Moved and headache went away :) Shared a pizza and a pitcher and relaxed with my daughter. It is definitely worth a stop!

This is affectionately known as the "haunted pizza parlor". The old (very) building is cool and there's supposedly a ghost that lives there. Can't say we saw her, but the antique furnishings were good fun.

You order pizza at the counter, get your drinks at the bar, and find a table. A playing card let's the server know which order is yours. For the record, the bartender made a great Long Island Iced Tea!

We started off with "garlic knots". These are breadsticks tied up in knots, dipped in butter, garlic and parm cheese. INCREDIBLE.

Next was a veggie pizza. This was about average. The unique part was that all of the veggies were added after cooking. Raw tomatoes, mushrooms and zucchini.

Note of caution... the building is cool but the location is shady to the extreme. I wouldn't bring young kids down. Too many adult establishments nearby. The young "ladies" across the street on the corner added to the atmosphere, just not in the way that families would appreciate.

Firstly, the ambiance is neat. It is an old building, and there is some funky history. The service is attentive too. However, the food is expensive and bland. Portland has so much more to offer.

Excellent pizza and salad! Enjoyed a house pizza on thin crust and some Caesar salad. Perfect before a blazers game.

Two levels. You can sit on a couch upstairs and enjoy a nice conversation in quiet with your loved one...no noisy kitchen or patrons to interrupt your visit....or enjoy a great pizza downstairs if you like the environment of listening in to other's conversations and laughter.....do not forget the to ask about the underground tunnels!
